Reader feedback: Disney and Scout funding

Here in the Valley, Boy Scout funding is a huge topic, especially since the decision last year, of many of the local United Way chapters to discontinue funding for the organization until they openly accept homosexual leaders and members.

They now allow gay members, but not gay adults and leaders.

Disney has now taken a stand, discontinuing funding for the Boy Scouts because of their stance on openly gay leaders.

And that has people talking:

It seems like the Boy Scouts decision on gay scouts will not dismiss the issue anytime soon, as the organization may have been hoping it would.

Until there’s a clear position for everyone, this is going to continue.

What do you think? Was Disney in the right?

Eagle Scout Award – Congrats, Chris!

1467239_702970706379823_817624881_nYesterday, a very deserving young man received his Eagle Scout award, for a beautiful memorial in Riverside that I visited this summer.

Unfortunately, I was under the weather yesterday, and I couldn’t share the ceremony with him, but I wanted to say congratulations on a job well done to Chris Morgan for a memorial that really has brightened up the community.

It’s always nice to see such memorials to veterans, but especially nice when they come from people who truly care about making the community and better and brighter place.

Once again, congratulations Chris!
